This little guest bathroom off of the kitchen has been relatively unchanged for years. ( I should have taken before pictures!  Arghhhh!)  Hard to believe that I would leave anything in my house unchanged that long, but....I did.  Then, after a girls trip to Florida and some inspiration from my favorite decor store there, I came home and started editing my whole house.  Now, I have problems in this arena sometimes, because I like to "see" my collections.  Can you relate?  Then it hit me, I could use some of my overflow in this little bathroom!

The result is that this room went from mostly black accents to sparkly white ones and the change is a big "duh" moment--why didn't I think of this before?  Here is the result...  I just have to admit that I wish I were a better photographer.  Maybe soon....in the meantime, here it is...

This painting is from a "Starving Artists" sale that used to run in Wichita a couple times a year.  It is about 30 years old.  It sat in the basement for many years and I'm surprised I didn't sell it at a garage sale BUT I'm sooo glad I didn't.  Little did I know then that I would fall madly in love with the beach later in my life!

This is a cross-stitch I did about that same time 30 years ago.  It took me a year (I'm not very fast and I had small children) and the whole thing is solid cross-stitching.  I had it custom framed and then dropped it while walking to the car!  The framer knew what happened and redid it no-charge!  A few years ago, I took it apart and spray painted the frame.

Thanks for reading.  Till next time...



  1. Love your "new" bathroom. Love the beachy theme also, but probably will never enjoy it in my own home now. Too many old pieces to change! But I do enjoy seeing yours, and you know Sarah (grandaughter) has most of her house in that theme now too, a lot thanks to Janet. Love it! Carol Lindberg

  2. Love the look you have created! Thanks for linking up with Home Sweet Home!


I love comments and appreciate the time you take to leave one.
